DomesDay 2017: Can These Domes Take The Weight?

Eleven teams will be competiting this year to see who can build the best geodesic dome across various criteria. Teams will be judged in dome aesthetics, mechanical strength (through compression testing), a presentation, and a poster. First place will receive $1,000! The competition will take place on the show floor in Pittsburgh, PA at MS&T on October 10, 2017 at booth 343.

We would like to thank all of our 2017 competitors!
